Will try this recipe minus the capers. Sounds good! I hope you are right re the potassium being 500+, not over 900 as another site says. Thanks. Moderator comment: Potassium from salmon varies with the type--wild, farmed, Atlantic, Coho, Chinook, Sockeye, etc. Coho and farmed Atlantic salmon are lower in potassium compared to Chinook and wild Atlantic salmon.

just wondering, isn't this kinda high on the potassium level? and also i use the selfnutitiondata site and thier chart says 4 oz. salmon has 704 mg. potassium not 524 which makes it even worse. i don't understand how your site is correct. Moderator comment: The potassium varies with the type of salmon selected. We use the USDA SR-23 database--a 4 ounce salmon fillet, cooked ranges from 435 to 623 mg potassium depending on the salmon variety and wild vs. farmed. An entree with 524 mg potassium can easily be worked into a 2000 to 3000 mg potassium diet.
